Re: [Serious] HRSDC does it again!!!
Seriously, what sort of IT people do they have? Sensitive personal information like this should be stored on a server with strong encryption, with no possibility for employees to export the data.
Like others already said, there is no excuse. Especially since they've screwed up before.
said by jobr:I'm wondering the same thing... there really is no excuse for this as there shouldn't be a single, portable hard drive floating around that has sensitive data. There's nothing anyone can say that would mitigate the necessity to fire someone, whether it's someone in management that allowed these files to reside on a portable drive or someone in IT that doesn't know what the fuck they're doing.

Sadly federal IT is fractured and there's no unified system of rules and procedures so it doesn't surprise me when an aspect of the federal government has inept IT people.
